    This book brings together the insights of practicing scientists, science education researchers, computer specialists, and cognitive scientists, to produce a coherent overview. It links presentations about the cognitive theory of representation and visualization, its implications for science curriculum design, and for learning and teaching in. Picturing what’s happening in a text while reading or listening — making “brain movies,” as some experts call it — is a cornerstone of reading comprehension. Of course, creating mental images helps students hone the skills outlined in the Common Core State Standards, but visualizing an author’s words also simply makes reading more enjoyable — and memorable, too.

    Opening the Door: Teaching Students to Use Visualization to Improve Comprehension Visualizing text is a proven way to improve reading comprehension. It is a technique that can be taught using this simple, step-by-step strategy from literacy consultant Cathy Puett Miller. Included: Tips and resources for developing students' comprehension skills. Begin reading the book aloud to the students at a moderate pace. You’ll want to pause and give students enough time to get their visualizations down on paper. Stop at planned points to clarify difficult vocabulary and check for understanding.

    Introduction-John K. Gilbert.- Section A: The significance of visualization in science education: 1. Visualization: A metacognitive skill in science and science education-John K. Gilbert. 2. Prolegomenon to scientific visualization-Barbara Tversky. 3. Mental models: Theoretical issues for visualizations in science education-David Rapp. 4. A model of molecular visualization-Michael Briggs. As an interdisciplinary field, data visualization brings together psychology, technology, art, and decision science to deliver the last mile of the complete BI and analytics capability to users.
